This morning Cook County Commissioners Tony Peraica and William Beavers were on Fox News Chicago. There was a lot of arguing on both sides. Bill Beavers accused many Cook County Commissioners for trying to get publicity because they are running for other offices, including Tony Peraica for State's Attorney, Forrest Claypool and Mike Quigley for Cook County President and Roberto Maldonado for Congress.
Bill Beavers went on to say that Todd Stroger talks too much and he has told him about it. And with all his spokespeople, including Bill Beavers? Bill Beavers went on to say he had talk Dr. Simon to stay off camera because he does not have good public relation skills. And I wonder after multiple requests for Dr. Simon to have the appropriate people at the Cook County Board meetings, why does he not do it? And why does he insist on trying to answer all of these Health Bureau questions? Bill Beavers also said that Peraica, Claypool, Maldonado, Quigley and all the others that were on the Board when all of these budget shortfalls fell into Todd Strogers presidency were from them. Tony Peraica said it was his father John Stroger's fault.
Tony Peraica said that there is a Democratic majority on the board and Todd Stroger had to rely on 3 Republicans to vote on his budget to pass. Tony Peraica went on to say that his fellow Republicans on the Board were not doing their job.
